Loved the video, perfect example of asymmetric information. I am currently a student studying Banking and Finance with the LSE internation program. I had thought of re doing your skit in class for a presentation of asymmetric info, but would honestly believe that would not be doing justice. I would like permission to play this clip and is there anyway I can download it?.

Looking forward to next video.

The crooked ones will wither and die. Good riddance. Just today we discovered that a mortgage company is still showing an asset on our property 3 years after it was paid off. I wonder how many more of these shadow assets are still around.

Whatever happens I just hope Goldies don’t get hurt.
They’ve been through a lot these last few year and I don’t think the partners can take much more.

These banks have been insolvent even without your latest discovery.
They had to change the accounting rules just to save the banks from immediate, total collapse, remember?

On the issue of the structuring, let’s not get too excited. The collateral disclosures in the bond indentures, at least by the big names, are pretty extensive, the problem was that no one was really reading them at the time. what I wonder is exactly how much money are the bond insurers spending right now to convince the world that it was not really that they did not know what they were doing in their main line of business (or they were too busy to read the indentures), but that all this was a monstrous conspiracy…..
